Our Night Skies

    Our Night Skies

    Jan 09, 2018

    Most of you have seen the moon, but have you ever actually looked at the moon and stars in a Dark Sky Community? Borrego Springs is the first International Dark Sky community in California. We earned that designation by restricting and modifying lighting on our homes and streets. Our skies are perfect for viewing the summer milky way, constellations and stars in general.

    There are several ways to view the sky. The first and easiest is to walk outside and look up. If you want to know a bit more about what you are seeing, Go on a Night Sky Tour with noted astronomer and my friend Dennis Mammana.
